Kirstie Simson (UK), eksplozivna snaga i nadahnuće suvremene plesne scene, svakim trenutak virtuozne improvizacije publiku dovodi u kontakt sa životnom snagom čiste kreacije.  New York Times prozvao ju je 'silom prirode', a londonski Time Out Magazine napisao kako je 'nemjerljivo obogatila i proširila granice suvremenog plesa'. Dobitnica je brojnih nagrada za ples, vrsna predavačica, zadivljujuća izvođačica i vodeća stručnjakinja u području plesne improvizacije.

Nakon što je 13 godina bila profesorica u trajnom zvanju na Odsjeku plesa Sveučilišta Illinois (SAD), u kolovozu 2020. vraća se u Wales (UK), gdje nastavlja istraživati i dijeliti svoje iskustvo kao samostalna umjetnica. Započela je uzbudljivu suradnju s Black Mountains Collegeom u Walesu. Kao članica Akademskog savjetodavnog odbora sudjeluje u osmišljavanju inovativnog studijskog programa 'planeto-centrične edukacije za bolju budućnost’ koji započinje u rujnu 2022.
